I haven't done one of these in FOREVER! I am so slacking, but this summer has been crazy.
On Fridays I'll feature one of my favorite books or a book I read in the last week and come up 5 words to describe it. View it as a super mini review. This week I'm featuring:
This was one of my priority summer reading books because I love the idea of the book, and I love a good contemporary. Here are my words:
Witty: The dialog throughout the entire book could be described as witty. I'm not sure if it was how sarcastic the MC was, which I totally appreciate, or if it was something else. But I enjoyed the dialog.
Flat: I had a hard time picking an adjective for this one. I settled on this one, because I think there could have been so much more done with this book. It tried to hit on a lot of things, but never gave any depth to any of them.
Innocuous: The book was just kind of there, it didn't offend, but it didn't inspire either.
Quick: This was in regards to the pacing for me. I flew through the book, which is always appreciated. I definitely enjoyed it enough to plow right through it.
Unmemorable: I actually read this a couple of weeks ago, and I struggled to remember things about the book. That is never a good sign, and it means I will most likely forget most of it by the end of the year. Now in the book's defense, I'm pregnant, so not a lot stays in my memory lately.
Bottom Line: I didn't hate it, but I didn't love it as much as I had hoped. It was a nice, quick, perfect summer read. It won't change lives, but it won't offend either.
